are falling behind on math and science. >> you're exactly right. it is a national security issue. i would step back and put the education system in that big bucket of national institutions that are failing to adapt to the times. just like our other institutions letting us down right now. we have our leaders on the national and local level instead of getting together and figuring out what needs to be done, how do we modernize and transform our education system, they are fighting with each other and finding scapegoats. i have a personal interest there because of family members. i think teachers, for example, are not paid in this country and getting too much of the blame for what's going on. instead of scapegoating, instead of fighting, we need to have some serious conversations about how can we do things differently than we have for the last 150 years because the times have changed and our systems needs to as well. >> susan, from what i've learned from education nation at msnbc, no single solution is going to work. there isn't a single bullet. there's a range of things. it is true we have to val
